My pleasure, no secrets hear. I've been doing this for a long time and I'm still learning a ton on every project I take on. Forums help me a lot too, and I hate people with secrets.

You guessed it! The motor went back in the car Monday so I could fab the turbo manifold.
The manifold design turned out awesome! Im super proud of it. The tolerances are very tight to feed the runners down to the collector to make sure there is room for a wastegate and 3-3.5 down pipe. Some

fabrication pics:

5pm last night.








5 pm today

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

When I do manifolds I mock it up like this, fully weld the merge collected then take the runners off the head flange and collector, then fully weld each runner and then weld the runners to the head flange and collector.

I ended up welding as much as I could while it was mocked up, for the exception of the head flange and collector. Then I took out two of the runners to finish weld everything.

Thanks man. I have the week off and have been planning to squeeze as much car work in as possible. I'm running the 6266, saw a post on evom where a guy with a 2.0 running 93/meth made 720 Whp on a dynojet! Mine should do more than that.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Its all welded up! Next step is to weld up down pipe then I can add the wastegate to the manifold. The first pic shows more of the design.

My daily is a evo IX SE, FP red powered on E85 with all the standard bolt ons, including a trailer hitch!

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

Yesterday I finished the manifold, O2 dump, and down pipe.


I'm officially sick of working on the car now, way too many hours spent this week. I have all winter to finish it up.

Re: Mark's Evo IX MR Winter Projects

You're definitely getting it done quickly. I'm starting to miss having mine here to work on, I might have to get it back here and start doing some work on the old girl.

Nice work, that's a tight squeeze in there with that mishi radiator.

Beautiful! Better keep going--look outside, winter is over!

Seriously though very nice work, it looks fantastic. Take your time finishing it up and let us know when you fire it up!
